Title Insurance

  • Successfully obtained judgment in favor of a title insurance company, which was affirmed on appeal. Through Diane’s efforts, the trial court sustained the title company’s demurrer to the plaintiff’s complaint, which alleged claims for negligence, negligent misrepresentation, breach of oral contract and abstractor negligence. The trial court held that a plaintiff who did not purchase a title policy or retain the title company to provide the services of an abstractor could not hold the title insurance company liable for his purported losses. The Court of Appeal affirmed the judgment in a published opinion, Soifer v. Chicago Title, 187 Cal. App. 4th 365, 114 Cal. Rptr. 3d 1 (2d Dist. 2010) adopting the arguments that Diane co-authored in the respondent’s brief.

Constitutional Rights

  • Successfully defended the County of Los Angeles in a Section 1983 action filed by employee in Federal District Court. The district court granted the County’s motion to dismiss the plaintiff’s deprivation of due process and violation of equal protection claims. In addition, the district court granted the County’s Motion for Summary Judgment in it entirety, holding that plaintiff’s First Amendment claim failed as a matter of law. The Ninth Circuit affirmed the judgment in favor of County.

Employment

  • Obtained a defense verdict for her client in a wage and hour employment suit by establishing that the plaintiff had been compensated for all overtime hours through a mutual wage agreement.

Banks
